The beautiful season of Spring brings us a chance for new beginnings. The cherry blossoms trees in Japan are in full bloom marking a new year for students and so on. The sakuras are beginning to fall painting the grey roads with colour and beauty.
Spring offers new life to everyone, many members have announced graduations or have already graduated to see what Spring has to offer. So far 2015 made us say goodbye to Yamada Nana and shocked us with the announcement of Kawaei Rina and many more. (Obviously TakaMina but I already dedicated a post to her and she was earlier)
I was going to wait until the end of the year to write about this but then my NMB48 oshimen decided to surprise me..
Kono Saki for the past three years has been a huge part of my wota-life.. I watched her enter NMB48 and remember being stunned when I found out this little, high pitched voice girl was actually about 2 years older me. 2012 was when I first started paying attention to AKB48 after being a Hello!Project fan for sometime. I wanted to learn more about Idols and what better way to do so than expanding the groups I listened to? Kono Saki is a HUGE Hello!Project fan which made me even happier knowing she had the same fangirl experience I do! Maybe that was the reason she became my oshimen from NMB, she didn’t get a lot of attention. –Sayanee does a fantastic job at promoting herself and the name NMB but not the members in it as she likes them to lead themselves-.. So unfortunately Kono never really got the chance to shine as much as she deserved, with her experience admiring Idols she surely knew how to be one..
To be completely honest we’ve been dreading every concert worrying about Matsui Rena, Kojima Haruna and many more. I’ve been worried about my ultimate oshimen, Miyazawa Sae, and that she’d be announcing her graduation which thankfully hasn’t happened yet
(April 11, 2015.. knock on wood I didn’t jinks this). So when tiny 20 year old Kono Saki announced that she had plans to graduate I took a step back and remembered all of the amazing things this doreamon member gave to NMB. Much like Kawaei Rina none of us has any idea it was the younger girls graduating on us! Of course I wish I had another 3 years of wota memories with her but I’m proud of her for finding herself so early on.
Here is a little history lesson, you dont have to read it lol
Sakipi, 2010 she was a little, tiny trainee that was ready to bloom as an Idol by 2012.. She was promoted to team BII after showing so much dedication and talent and earning herself position with such humble courtesy to your seniors the same time I started taking interest in the AKB48 groups. I began to learn more about her and was so happy when I read she was also a wota and enjoyed the same H!P members I did including Kusumi Koharu and many more. She worked very hard in Team BII and was transferred to team N in February of 2014 which was such an amazing moment for her! I really thought this was when her career would reach it’s peak.. Saki’s mom has very strong opinions which may have discouraged her from taking on more of a role in team N but she got there and nothing would change that.
I’m honestly going to miss her so much and this is a post I wish I never had to write, it will be difficult to look at NMB the same way again..
However, Sakipi wants NMB to stay successful so I’ll cheer them on until the very end!!
Thank You Kono Saki for all of your hard work and so on!
I’m going to miss every singly 48 girl graduating this year.
Please continue to support your Idols even after they graduate… totally not crying guys…
From one Morning Musume fan to another, congratulations Sakipi
It’s a bit heart breaking,
this is how it feels when something you really care about disappears, huh?
Uneasy and hesitant..
